The V-173 “Flying Pancake,” did it stack up?

Aerodynamics are a funny thing. In the 1930s, flight was only three decades old. People who had never seen a man fly let alone an aircraft at one time were still very much alive, in fact only middle aged. As new as the concept was, aviation was [...]

Vought F4U-1D Corsair – US Navy VF-84 – USS Bunker Hill – Febr.1945

Bonjour chers iModelers, I am glad to introduce my latest model, a very classic Corsair from VF-84, but I wanted it on my shelf. It is the well-known Tamiya kit which is, despite of its age, a more than excellent kit. My first try with chippin[...]

Fernando Soto’s F4U-5NL (Hasegawa 1/48

Fernando Soto's Corsair, done back in 2003 with the Hasegawa 1/48 F4U-5N kit A little-known fact of Corsair operations is that of the six air forces that flew the type operationally, two used their Corsairs against each other in the last air wa[...]

1/72 Revell F4U-4B

World War II Dive Bombers

For several years I had a goal of building 1/48 scale models of all the Navy dive-bombers that saw action in WWII. I'd been fascinated with dive-bombing ever since I read Walter Lord's book "Incredible Victory", and saw the movie "Midway" in th[...]
